The Callout for the Order of the Arrow is the public recognition ceremony acknowledging a Scout’s election into the OA, presenting to their peers that this Scout has been called out, and where the Scout receives their invitation to complete the induction weekend. Typically held at Spring Fellowship or Fall Fellowship, this experience is called the Ordeal.

About the Order of the Arrow

For over 100 years, the Order of the Arrow (OA) has recognized Scouts and Scouters who best exemplify the Scout Oath and Law in their daily lives. This recognition provides encouragement for others to live these ideals as well. Arrowmen are known for maintaining camping traditions and spirit, promoting year-round and long term resident camping, and providing cheerful service to others. OA service, activities, adventures, and training for youth and adults are models of quality leadership development and programming that enrich and help to extend Scouting to America’s youth.
